How to be empowered about peri-menopause

Tracey was obsessed about menopause. It is all she could talk about once she hit that phase in her life.

Tracey grew up in a family where topics like menopause was not exactly to be discussed. Think British and think proper. Once she entered this phase herself she had no clue how to relate her symptoms with a possible diagnosis until hot flashes hit her. Aha, might this be the great transition?

Her Western medical doctor confirmed that she indeed had entered the perimenopausal phase.  That’s when her obsession started. To be fair, it was a cute and positive obsession, but it was an obsession. She gobbled up books and researched like crazy. It was all so fascinating.

It was not until she visited her Ayurvedic doctor, however,  that she stopped identifying with the label and actually realized she could do something about it. Instead of giving up her power to an outside person she took matters in her own hand and empowered herself along the journey. In this podcast, she shares with us her trials, insights and tribulations and how she came out the other end wiser and more attuned to her body than she ever had been.

What You get from tuning in:

  • What symptoms you might encounter during menopause
  • The concept of hormone disruptors, what they are and how to avoid them
  • How culture can impact your menopause experience
  • How menopause is lived in Bahrain, an island near Saudi Arabia
Books mentioned:
  • Menopause sucks: Tracey loves this book. I don’t. What do you think?
  • The Red Tent: I love this book. Don’t know what Tracey thinks. In any case it gives a beautiful view of the power of female relationships.
